State Fund Announces Work Comp Rate Increase for 4/1/15 – Some employers up to 17.5%

4 Feb

The State Compensation Insurance Fund in California is boosting its workers’ comp rates effective April 1st and it says insured employers will be paying based upon the overall average some 9% more under the modifications. Some employers however will be hit harder than others as State Fund is boosting tier A and B rates by 5%, dropping the 6% group discounts and increasing territorial surcharges in southern California 6.5% for Los Angeles and 4.8 for the rest of the area.
That means that effectively, a tier A or B account which is currently in a group and located in Los Angeles could see an increase of 17.5%. Accounts in Los Angeles not in a group will see increases of 11.5%.
State Fund, California’s market of last resort, is also increasing its requirements for schedule credits and debits to $25,000 and increasing minimum premiums by 25%.
All this is at a time when many employers are being hit hard by dramatic increases in their experience modifications, due to changes in the rating process in California.

Thanks to the Workers’ Compensation Executive for the news flash. http://www.wcexec.com
